Protein Poppers

Summertime in my house this year is full of working kids, while I have time off since I work for a school. They need to be up and out of the house very early each day, so they appreciate having a grab and go breakfast for a quick exit out of the house. I keep these tasty protein poppers in the freezer and they love taking a few along with a banana on their way out the door. Both of my daughters are living in an apartment at college and this is a perfect college-cooking recipe to make! Yum!


1 cup rolled oats
1 cup steel cut oats
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1 cup rice crispy cereal
1 cup nut butter (peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter- which ever is your favorite)
1 cup ground flax seed
2/3 cup chocolate chips, optional (I like the mini ones)
3/4 cup raw honey
2 tsp vanilla

You can also add other items like coconut or chopped nuts- they opportunities are endless!

Put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and combine. You can mix them by hand or in a stand mixer. Add chocolate chips if using or other desired mix ins. Chill the mixture in the fridge for an hour so that balls bind together. Roll the balls into about a 1 inch diameter and keep in freezer.

Roll the poppers into balls and put on baking sheet before putting into freezer
